There are sound adjustments during Bertha.

Reviewer: njpg - - November 20, 2012
Subject: Brilliant show.
Lesh is very prominent in the mix.
Reviewer: lexpost - - January 13, 2012
Subject: Yes, there's a lot of bass in the mix but not beyond redemption
I first got a hold of part of this show back in '78 or '79. What really makes this show stand out for me is Phil taking a solo out of the Dark Star into the Weather Report

Subject: A Count Too Bass-y
Tried diligently to stream this entire show but it was too bass-y on my playback system to enjoy. Towards the end of Dark Star I just had to give it up.

Subject: Don't forget the Bird Song!
i agree this show is somewhat overrated, but i think it deserves high marks for what surely must be, imho, a TOP FIVE reading of Bird Song. is '72 this songs best year? 8/27, 9/10, 9/27, 10/18-19, and 11/17 are all great.

This particular performance is wonderfully jazzy with Lesh and Garcia intertwining beautifully during the between-verses jamming. Garcia's phrases are endlessly inventive and full of passion...listen to the entire song PEAK at the 4:25 mark!

The Dark Star is actually pretty underrated and unique...look out for great versions of Don't Ease, Big RXR Blues, and China>Rider too!

Subject: Nice Texas Darkstar...
Bot both of these Hofheinz show are bit overrated. The sound quality/mix are a slightly off and these two performances are not nearly as inspiring as the creme de la creme of '72. (92 pts)

I first got a tape of this show around the time they broke out Box of Rain on 03-20-86 ,and I always loved this version of Box of Rain.I also had this show on a bootleg album called Texas Stiffs.This version sounds better than any copy I used to have.
